KME Recalling 695 Emergency Vehicles

May 22, 2013

Kovatch Mobile Equipment Corp. (KME) is recalling 695 2009-2013 model-year Predator, Predator SS and Panther vehicles; 2010-2011 model-year ARFF vehicles; and 2010-2013 model-year Panther II emergency vehicles.

In these vehicles, the grease fitting in the steering column shaft may get caught in the column cover. If the cover tears as a result, this could impact the driver's ability to steer the vehicle, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

Dealers will make the necessary repairs free of charge.

Owners can reach KME at 1-570-669-5173.
